Whipple Museum at the University of Cambridge

Whipple aficionados will want to read a recent post about the Whipple Museum of the History of Science at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., on Blaine Whipple's blog. The museum was established in 1944, when Robert Stewart Whipple presented his collection of scientific instruments and books to the university.

Mr. Whipple is in the Whipple Genweb at http://whipple.org/117682. The Whipple Website's photo gallery has a photograph of a plaque at the entrance to the museum. Here are a few other photos from the Webmaster's 2005 visit to Cambridge:

As Whipple DNA tests progress (after the DNA signatures of U.S. Whipples have been established), it might be interesting to see if any present-day Whipples in England have ancestors in common with U.S. Whipples.
